    Research before attending. Check what current students say. Howard is just a name and isn’t worth the loans

    Do your research. Do not depend solely on social media to be the lens through which you look at this school. Understand the rigor and the nuances that come with many of the programs (i.e BS/MD, BS/DDS, 5 year Architecture program). Understand that you must pave your own way here and that nothing will be given to you.

    Always check your BisonWeb account and email: These are 2 sources that will help guide your path at Howard. It will keep you aware of any holds on your account, remaining balances, course schedule, etc. Check your DegreeWorks account prior to registering for classes: Before you meet with your advisor to register, this will show you what remaining classes you need to earn your degree. It is a very useful tool to help you stay on top of your academic plan. ASK FOR HELP: All staff, professors, financial aid agents, advisors, deans, etc., are always available for a student who has a question, needs some guidance, or just needs to talk. If you need something ask for it. You will never regret it.
